Milpitas, CA " Intersil Corp. announced Monday (January 10th) one of the industry's first completely integrated triple analog delay line. The triple line enables systems transmitting video over twisted-pair products to transmit and receive skew-free RGB (red, green, blue) video over 1000 feet of CAT-5 cable. Intersil claims the EL9115 is the first triple analog delay line on the market and builds upon the company's expertise in analog video.
The EL9115 allows system designers to replace banks of op amp circuits or folded traces consuming board space with a single 20-pin QFN device. The EL9115 allows three channels to be independently delayed in 2ns steps, up to 62ns. This allows for programmed de-skewing of signals, such as RGB video that is transmitted over CAT-5 cabling. Signals can be exactly aligned at the receiver, to ensure there correspondence for sharp imagery. The EL9115 is controlled through a simple serial interface and can be operated from ±V supplies. The interface allows manual control of the delay for each channel. This enables the user to adjust the delay until the skew is removed from the signal chain.
The EL9115 is architected to provide good channel-to-channel gain matching and percent delay accuracy. It draws from the company's experience op amps and high-speed line drivers, according to Patrick Long, Intersil's marketing manager for Video Products.
